Onboarding. It’s a very essential step in the life cycle of an employee’s “career” with your company, and often times, not enough resources go into making it a comprehensive and positive experience.
It ranges from getting your new hire set up with the tools and processes they need to get started with their role, to getting bonded with your team straight away.
It sets the precedence for the experience that the new hire is going to have with your company, and may also play a part in determining how long they’ll stick around.
After all, first impressions count for a lot right?
At Piktochart, we’ve naturally played to our strengths and used visuals to onboard some of our newest teammates, but also wanted to equip you with some inspiration that we’ve seen around the web. Let’s get started!
KERN, a creative agency, has gone the extra mile in their onboarding efforts by creating their own onboarding magazine.
As pictured, you can see that the glossy pages include a map of the office space so the new hire will always know where they are, and also a visual of the team workflow. Handing out one of these on a new hire’s first day shows that your company has dedicated resources for HR.

There’s a lot to take in when starting a new job, but a big part of the process of getting acquainted with your new company is to understand the culture. What better way to do that than through an employee handbook?
There are a handful of routes you can go when creating a handbook of your own – but we really like Facebook’s inspirational approach, as well as 22Squared’s day-by-day onboarding route.
Company values. The set of slogans that you’ve defined early in the game, which give deep insight into your brand essence and what drives your company vision and mission. Getting your new hires acquainted and resonating with your company values during the onboarding process is important – so why not do it in infographic form?

Your company’s founding story, milestones throughout the years, mission and vision, user base, and competitors – these are all key elements that make up your business. So during the onboarding process, which is just like an in-depth introduction to your company – it might work best to outline all of these elements in a visual. We really like these examples from Credilogic and Venngage.
